Publisher's Summary

Fate. Hate. Love. Lies.

Which four letter word will change their lives forever?

Sydney Paige was never so mortified to hear the words "wrong number" in her life. She meant to tell off the guy who broke her best friend's heart but unleashed her anger on a perfect stranger instead. And now her world is turned upside down by the captivating man who wants to keep her on the line.

Brian Savage is living a life he's quickly come to hate - until Sydney's wild rant has him hooked and hungry for more. Soon the sexy woman on the phone becomes the lover in his bed. But Brian has secrets, and the closer he lets Syd get, the harder it is to shield her from the devastating mistakes of his past.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    Story
    "She Was Wild; He Was Trouble!"

    Good story, but narration stole the show, and helped boost the overall rating from 3 to 4 stars. I find stories with mixed reviews tend to have the more intriguing plots, and while Four Letter Word wasn't as intense, or drama filled as other audiobooks, the plot was interesting and held my attention. I liked how J. Daniels takes the concept of calling the wrong number, develops a plot and runs with it. Sydney's wrong call turns into a few innocent back and forth texts with Brian, and they quickly fall into routine of texting, and talking. They flirt, tell secretes, and even come with cute nicknames for each other. It's implied they will never see each other, until the night Brian watches his friend from across the parking lot stop three women from committing vandalism and he recognizes Sydney, his nightly phone call obsession. Brian can't believe Sydney's actually in the same town. She wasn't able to see him across the parking lot and doesn't know just how close they really are, but seeing Sydney changes everything for him.

    Brian has been living a double life that has been weighing on him. While he is part owner in a surfer shop, he takes side jobs in the adult industry to earn extra cash fast for someone who he unintentionally hurt. Only handful of his friends know Brian's secrete, and why he's consumed with guilt. As Sydney and Brain develop deeper feelings, he starts to regret his decision to work for Ecstasy, and quits his "dirtier" job, but secretes always have a way of coming out.

    The narration really made this story! Both Kate Russell and Sebastian York's performance was awesome!

    Overall, decent plot, and good character development. I liked the secondary characters just as much as Brian and Sydney and look forward to their story, Hit the Spot in the Dirty Deeds series.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    Story
    "Fated lovers"

    Four Letter Word is a clever and witty, completely original take on a romance. I love when characters have such distinct personalities that you know who is talking without knowing who is talking. Usually that is the benefit of narration, however I know it would have been obvious even without the narrators.

    J Daniels created so much sympathy and empathy and concern for her characters that I genuinely cared what was going to happen next as if they were my friends. I was totally lost in this world.

    Although Sebastian is the only narrator listed, this is, indeed, a dual narrative. However Sebastian, in my opinion, is the only reason to keep listening. The female narrator was the wrong choice for me. Her tone and follow through was too old and matronly for the character. I didn't enjoy listening to intimate scenes because she felt like my mom basing it on voice alone. She is an extremely talented narrator and most definitely has a place in the narrative world, I just felt as though this book was the wrong fit and Sebastian York was the wrong partner for her.

    Sebastian was perfection, but always is and plays the manly roles with an expertise that is enviable.

    Story
    "Some Merits? Don't Think So...."

    Brian's 'secret' or excuse of a secret nearly tanked this story for me. That was so asinine. He could have helped out in any way but for what he was doing. It worked some, for the angst aspect of the story, but not by much. Sydney did rise above her poor excuse of a man, her ex. I just want to know what happened to him and his new 'girlfriend later, but there was nothing.
    Anywho, the sexy (yes I dare go there) voice of Sebastian York lifted this book from mediocre to good. Otherwise it is the same old cliche story line. I didn't feel all the 5 stars reviews. Sorry.

    "Awesome narrorators!"

    I've never written a review, but I always read the reviews.
    The reviews for this book discouraged me because of the bad female narrorator comments. I'm glad I decided I just couldn't pass up a Sebastian York book regardless.
    Kate Russell does a fine job co-narrorating.
    I enjoyed the book as well as both narrorators.

    I cannot say enough good things about this book. It's such an emotional read, and such a satisfying read! Which makes it a must read, I'd say.

    Story
    "So much more than I expected! Great listen!"

    This is the first time I have read the work of J. Daniels, but it will not be the last.

    This story was entertaining, if not altogether believable in parts. Sebastian York as the male performance was his stellar self and Kate Russell also did a very good job.

    I have seen mixed reviews on this listen and I hesitated before purchasing, but I am glad I did. Although the first half of the book is based on a developing relationship with a broken hearted Sydney who runs to her best friend who is also going through a break up. Sydney decides to make a call to defend her friend and ends up with the "wrong number". She is mortified. The mistaken callee (Brain) is intrigued by Sydney and decides to form a "phone friendship."

    This is where the story begins to take a weird turn for me. Brian is trying to atone for a mistake in his past that he believes himself to be wholly responsible for. To help "fund" and "make up" for said transgression he performs for a porn site. He did not exactly try to keep his identity a secret and his closest friends know, but as he develops a deeper relationship with Sydney, he attempts to keep it a secret. To his credit he did quit his online "performing". I had a hard time believing this was the only way he could earn enough money to help out in the way he thought he should, but it was the authors story to tell and who am I to judge the vehicle she chooses to use.

    All in all this was a good story. It unfolded and ended in an interesting manner and you were pulling for Syd and Brian to have their happily ever after. Personally, I do not think I could have gotten over the porn site thing ... but good for Syd for putting it behind her (so to speak and no pun intended).

    I purchased this book with a credit and I am not sorry.

    "Another winner for J. Daniels"

    The only recommendation I could make to this book would be could Sebastian York have more speaking parts?
    J. Daniels never disappoints. I've been a fan since her first Alabama Summer Series book. J. Daniels writes about girls you want to be and guys you wan to... well, you know what I'm talking about.
    I recommend this book to everyone who likes a good steamy romance! 5 hot flaming stars
